Girls on the Run Vermont, a chapter of the international nonprofit Girls on the Run International, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Also, Executive Director and Founder Nancy Heydinger will be retiring and ‘passing the torch’ on to the current Statewide Program Administrator Rachel Desautels.
Girls on the Run Vermont is a 10 week after school program that teaches 3rd through 8th grade girls the importance of self-confidence, empowerment and navigating peer relationships, while giving back to the community, all culminating in a 5K celebration.
That 5K celebration takes place Saturday, June 1, 2019. The community is invited to run, volunteer and cheer on these young ladies as they accomplish a big goal! For more information, or to register as a runner or volunteer, click here.
